Quite a bit happened while I was gone, however. I managed to get our holiday lights up outside, took my son to get his cast off and his wisdom teeth out, and we went to Arizona for Thanksgiving.
In all, it was a busy couple of weeks, but I did miss blogging and I'm glad to be back.
I hope these "fabulous finds" I came across in the past few weeks will interest you.
This Week's Fabulous Finds:
I am definitely going to try roasting garlic this way!
~ ~ Roasted Garlic
~ ~ Perfect Pie CrustA beautiful pie is like a work of art. This video from King Arthur Flour takes all the mystery out of how to crimp the edges, and make a really pretty crust.
~ ~ A detector of GlutenFor people with Celiac Disease, ingesting even a small amount of gluten can be very harmful. I just read about a device that can test foods instantly to see if they are gluten-free. It should be available soon - and seems like it would be a wonderful tool.
~ ~ Still MissingWhen Malaysia airline MH370 went down in March 2014, I could not believe that it could just disappear. A year and a half later, sadly, it has still not been found. I just came across this update.
~ ~ Holiday LightsI managed to get our holiday lights up just before the weather turned really cold and snowy this year. If you haven't put yours up yet, you might find reading my article from last year helpful:
|I was glad I got these lights up before Thanksgiving. It snowed and temperatures dropped to subzero just before we left for Arizona.|
~ ~ A possible step forward in the fight against MSA recent study looks at a promising approach to helping patients with Multiple Sclerosis, a disease which affects millions of people. While more work needs to be done, it would be wonderful if this research leads towards developing a cure.
